    New 2008 Kawi Ultra LX

    Hi to everybody! I am interested in buying a new Ultra Lx, i like the design and a huge hull, but i think that this ski has a lack of hp. I've found one on e-bay for 6750$, and think that it is a fair price. Opinions? What mods could i do to get a little bit more of that engine? Thanks

    I have an '08 Ulta LX. I bought it for skiing and towing a tube primarily. It has a ton of storage capacity and the hull really grips better and provides a better ride (in my opinion) than other models. It cranks out 150hp...that's plenty for me. If you want the fastest ski, this isn't it...but it's arguably the most versatile one!

    The LX has around 160hp.
    Stock this ski runs around 53-54mph.
    You could advance the timing 4-6 degs, get a ride plate, and remove the secondary waterbox.
    Should be looking at running around 56 maybe 57mph with those mods with not much fuel left.

    Congrats! You will definitely enjoy it!! I misstated the HP # by 10 in my last post...my bad...lol. Mine is completely stock. I think I'll keep it that way as the uptick in performance from the mods stated in this string is neglibile, in my opinion.

    Does anyone know if the 2009 seat will fit on the '08 Ultra LX?
